Additional Details

Originally published: New York : Grosset & Dunlap, c1980.

Fledging -- Pilot -- Fly a crooked sky -- If I'm a kid doctor, where's my jar of lollipops? -- Law degree is just an illegal technicality -- Paperhanger in a Rolls-Royce -- How to tour Europe on a felony a day -- Small crew will do-it's just a paper airplane -- Does this tab include the tip? -- Put out an APB-Frank Abagnale has escaped!

The world's most sought-after con man wrote $2.5 million in bad checks, practiced law without a license, practiced medicine with no medical training, and co-piloted a Pan Am Jet with a fake license. Slated for production at Dream Works Entertainment, and now updated with a new Afterworld, Catch Me If You Can contains all of the elements of the most wildly imaginative fiction, except that Abagnale's exploits actually happened.

This was an interesting story that kept me engaged. Hard to believe what this man was able to do.


Truly fascinating story. Not so sure it would be so easy for him to do the things he did, today... But then again that's probably in thanks to him. Very enjoyable read.

Facinating Man

I met Frank back in the early 80's when he was promoting this book. He has an amazing story and is a great speaker. He has a way of earning trust and crediblity that is utterly amazing. A great read - and it's true!

Man of a 1000 faces

Great for reluctant readers (primarily young men, I'd say). A page-turner. How can it be so easy to impersonate so many professionals? (Hint: public-library research plays a big part.)
